Canadian Solar Inc has lowered revenue projections for the fourth quarter and full year 2017 due to a delay in completing the sale of a 703-MWp solar project portfolio in California.

In a press release, the company explained solar module shipment guidance for the fourth quarter of 2017 had been revised upwards and was expected to be in the range of approximately 1,720MW to 1,820MW, compared to previous guidance of 1,650MW to 1,750MW.

As a result of the delay in completing the transactions, the Company now expects its total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 to be in the range of $1.04 billion to $1.08 billion, compared to $1.77 billion to $1.81 billion guided previously.
